20 Members of Congress Personally Invest in Top Weapons Contractors That Will Profit from the Just-Passed $40B Ukraine Aid Package

At least 20 federal lawmakers or their spouses hold stock in Raytheon Technologies and Lockheed Martin, which manufacture the weapons Western allies are sending Ukraine to fight Russian invaders, according to an Insider analysis of federal financial records. The stock holdings by members of Congress come as Congress, on Thursday, approved $40 billion in defense and other aid to Ukraine. Both companies’ stock — especially that of Lockheed Martin — have risen since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

Only 20? I don’t believe that.
